What is ISO 27001?

ISO/IEC 27001 is an international standard on how to manage information security. The standard was originally published jointly by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) in 2005 and then revised in 2013. It details requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving an information security management system (ISMS) – the aim of which is to help organizations make the information assets they hold more secure. A European update of the standard was published in 2017. Organizations that meet the standard’s requirements can choose to be certified by an accredited certification body following successful completion of an audit. The effectiveness of the ISO/IEC 27001 certification process and the overall standard has been addressed in a recent large-scale study.

Does ByteChek have a SOC 2 report?

Yep. We earned a SOC 2 because we wanted to have an independent third party validate that the ByteChek engine is processing your controls completely and accurately. Reach out to our business development team to get a copy of our SOC 2 report.

How detailed are the risk assessment reports?

Pretty detailed. For both the NIST CSF and HIPAA reports, your on-demand report includes an overview of the standard or framework, the methodology utilized in the assessment including a detailed description of the risk rating methodology and the results of the risk assessment.

How much time and effort does ByteChek save?

We’ve performed hundreds of SOC 2 examinations. This experience helped us identify about 60 common controls that our platform helps automate and streamline. To put that number into context, we’ve found that a SOC 2 Examination that includes Security, Availability & Confidentiality in-scope has around 60 controls (this number is an average, your total number of controls will vary). So ByteChek (on average) helps save you time and effort on about 85% of your controls.
